    It does not look to bad at the moment for tes wed next week, if you look at the boat fishing section you should find the second entry down has a 14 outlook for Whitby.
    Save the big fish for me, I am out with Trot On on the Thursday.

    Just ordered some lug from Rods & Reels, and the chap in the shop said the biggest fish so far is a cod of just over 8lb. So it's all to play for lads!!! :happy:

    I was talking to Paul two days ago and he states that an 8lb fish is winning, with the smaller tides due next week hopefully one treble the size of that should show :yes:
    Fazbats i have jus checked the forecast for next Thusdy and Friday and according to the met office weather they are claiming gales coming in from the west. :cry:
    Hopefull that its wrong as i am only aloud out three times a year and thats to fish the festivals.

    Hi Misso. Agreed it aint looking good for next thurs and fri, with winds of up to 19mph on thurs afternoon and 21mph around noon on fri, according to Metcheck. Mon to Weds still look okay though, with 13mph the highest during this period. :wink:

    Just had a word with John Wilford of Two Doggs. He said he's not been out since Weds due to bad weather, and cancelled today due to forecast gusts of up to 31 mph. Said he wished he hadn't though, as there's virtually no wind and the weather's "beautfiul". It seems we're not the only ones having trouble predicting what the north sea is going to chuck at us next, but Johns gut feel is that he'll be getting out a lot more next week. Not sure whether that 8lb cod has been trumped yet!? :confused:

    The weather watch at the moment has taken over my life,5 days to go and everyweather site that i have visited shows different wind speed.
    Can the forecasters get it right 5 days in advance?
    Magic weed gives an 11mph, whilst the BBC and metoffice are showing 19mph for thursday.
    Who do i believe :sad:

    When we got back into port on tuesday afternoon on trot-on, word had it that a 17lb ling had been caught on Sea-Otter2. Is this fish still winning the festival?

    Good comment. If anyone can answer it I'd like to meet them. I always think if you want to go fishing you will find a weather site that gives favourable weather. If you don't wan't to go you will find one that gives crap weather.

    We were boat fishing 14 miles from launch (probs about 8 miles from land) this year. Looking back towards land the chimney at Boulby had the steam bent at 90 degrees so it was very windy there. The stacks at Wilton ICI were going straight up. It stayed like that for at least 4 hours.

    I would say it's impossible to predict the weather on even a 10 mile stretch of coast accurately.

    I would just like to say how much I thoroughly enjoyed participating in this years Autumn festival. The hospitaility and friendliness we "Southerners" encountered in Whitby was absolutely first rate, from the skippers, to the tackle shop owners, publicans, everyone we met. I didn't quite get amongst the prize money on the two days I fished, but was well chuffed with the cod to 8lbs and ling to 10lbs I managed as a Whitby first-timer. Roll-on April '09 I say - I'll be back!
